Codice Citra was founded in 1973 when 3,000 small family growers decided to unite to form a winery dedicated to quality. The property, with its 6,000 hectares—14,800 acres—covers the majority of the Chieti province. Since its foundation, Codice Citra has focused on cultivating the most important, indigenous grape varieties within the province of Chieti.
About the Vineyard
These family owned properties, some with only 1 hectare, create a mosaic of small vineyards stretching north to south along the Adriatic coast and east to west from the sea to Majella Mountain. The range of climate and topography offers unparalleled quality and variety. Winemaking process from vineyard to bottle led by world-renowned enologist Riccardo Cotarella.
Light crushing and cold maceration of hand-harvested grapes. The must from the first press, separated by gravity, ferments at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks.
Soft, floral and pleasantly dry with crisp, fresh citrus flavors.
Delicate with a savory appeal, this wine is excellent on its own as an aperitif or ideal with fish, white meat, or slightly seasoned cheeses.
